This was our first experience at an all inclusive resort and we weren't disappointed. Transfer from the airport was a breeze and was just as advertised. Sandals has a nice waiting area where you can get a drink while you wait which for us was only 5 or 10 minutes and the resort is only 10 minutes away from the...

My husband and I chose this resort for our anniversary celebration due to the short flight and travel time from the airport.

My husband and I chose this resort for our honeymoon. It's not what we expected and totally not worth what we spent. I read the reviews a few weeks before going there and was having second thoughts but thought to myself that everyone has their own opinion and would have to go and experience it myself. The food was not...

My husband and I were there from August 13th thru 19th. AMAZING!!! We were happy from arrival to departure. We've never experienced such service. We had everything at our beck and call. We did have a butler, Curtis, whom we didn't use much but he was there every time we asked. The views are wonderful. The beach and water amazing....

My husband and I chose this resort as our first Sandals experience and we can not even begin to say how amazing it was. The service and staff were top of the line, along with all the accommodations and activities. We couldn't get enough of the pools and beach front there. We hopped from place to place each day, never...

We booked this holiday as we had previously been to the Sandals Grand Riviera resort for our honeymoon and it was bliss so we wanted to enjoy another Sandals break. This resort was recommended to us and the private island is certainly a big plus. We booked a room with a shared pool and it was nice. I think nice...
